3. DISABLED PASSENGER LABELED “SAFETY RISK”


Should a paraplegic traveler be allowed to fly without a caregiver? Britain’s Easy Jet Airline didn’t think so in the case of Marie-Patricia Hoarau. They refused to allow the wheelchair user to take a flight from Paris to Nice--even though they had allowed her to fly her outbound segment without an attendant. Easy Jet termed Hoarau a “safety risk” and removed her from her return flight but later allowed her to take another flight with an accompanying passenger.
